la sirena bella

another fun-tastic day in the art room!! i finished the above custom piece for my co-worker, marcella. she collects mermaids and loves to wear glittery things. so, i added glitter to the collage just for her. la sirena bella is spanish for beautiful mermaid. this piece looks much better in person. it is late and dark and i've lost all my wonderful natural light for tonight.

i also finished up 2 more of the above piece which i posted earlier this summer. the lady i made this for decided she wanted 2 more just like it. so, voila i whipped up a couple more.

my next 2 commissions are a crane in blue marsh collage and then a coffee-themed collage. after that i'll be working on ideas for 2 wedding gifts. a co-worker wants to give a custom collage to each of her daughters who are getting married in 2009. i have a few ideas sketched out and want to present the ideas to her next week.

of course, we have christmas coming up and i'm incubating a few projects to give for gifts.

off to sand some more wood for the next round of collages!!

Sounds like you are busy! The mermaid piece is fabulous! And I love the tree piece too. Looking forward to the other pieces you mentioned. I still think you need to do more kitty art.
